Cadillac "Under 5"

Five seconds is all Cadillac needs to convince you of the speed and power of its three V-Series vehicles. And the American car manufacturer proved it with a series of five-second TV spots that illustrate just how quickly a V-Series can go from 0-60 miles per hour. The centerpiece of the TV campaign was a 60-second spot titled "Barrels," in which one of the cars is shot out of a tunnel like a bullet. All the spots directed viewers to a website with details for a short film competition calling on aspiring filmmakers to submit their own 5-second masterpieces.

Pepsi One "Oneify"

Global unity-through a soda brand? Not as crazy as it sounds, as proven by "Oneify," the street-level campaign by TBWA aimed at revitalizing the Pepsi One brand. Pepsi dumped the glitzy celebrity-driven TV spots of past soda campaigns in favor of an approach that tapped into the street culture of today's trend-setting youth with a series of outdoor ads, animated webisodes, downloads and social events-all starring an eclectic array of Geoff McFetridge-designed characters.
